(b) Learning from a colleague: This is often the most difficult area of learning. This is because an average man has the tendency to argue with a colleague than with a senior. The truth however is that somebody has something that you don’t have and if it’s a colleague, you must not make things difficult for yourself. Be humble and learn what you have to learn from that person.
(c) Learning from a junior: One of the things that God does sometimes is that He hides answers or critical learning for us in seemingly small people. Many times, God will place such people around you to give you something that could connect you to something great. God is not just a God of great things and big things; He is also the God of small things and small people. In 2 Kings 5, Naaman who happened to be captain of the host of Syria needed healing from leprosy; he probably consulted many great people and physicians, due to his status. All along, the answer to his problem was in his housemaid.
(d) Learning from your enemy: This kind of learning is not a gift. These are things that you must develop skills in because when an enemy speaks you’ll want to fight him, but what can you learn from him? Don’t be blinded by your feelings towards an enemy. If there’s something about them you can learn from, do so!
